Identity theft is the unlawful use of a person’s personal identification information. Identity thieves steal information such as your name, social security number, driver's license information, or bank and credit card accounts and use the information to establish credit, make purchases, apply for loans or even seek employment.
Consumers are usually aware of when they become victims of identity theft. Knowledge in many instances can come from viewing a credit report, attempting a loan transaction, or even an odd communication from an individual or lender indicating the wrong person.
Identity theft perpetrators can come in the form of family members, or other persons with access to the victim’s personal information, either social security number, driver's license number, date of birth, or asset information. Armed with such sensitive information, an unscrupulous identity thief can open up credit card accounts, mortgages, utility accounts, steal money, or other assets from an unknowing individual.
